Advice on new fuel pump for '74 2002


rbaron

Recommended Posts

I need to replace the fuel pump on my '74 2002, and would like some advice.  A number of sites say a Pierburg pump fits (# 7.02242.25.0 on pump label).  But it seems too short because it will press into the coolant hose that runs from beneath it from temp sensor housing back to intake manifold. The original pump is about 1/2 to 1 inch taller so it goes above and does not touch the coolant hose. Does anyone have advice on whether or not to install the Pierburg pump?  I think it is best to get a BMW pump instead. BMW lists 3 possible pumps (13311265192, 13311265193, 13311257784).  The first one is discontinued and the other two are back-ordered from Germany and it may be a couple months before they get to the US.  One source told me another pump (13311261622) might fit, but BMW tells me that they are not sure since this pump started 9/75.  Does anyone have advice about whether this pump will work in my '74 car?  The car has a Weber carb, if this makes a difference.

I saw your post on the main page and John's advice to contact Steve at Blunttech is a good start.  I bought my shorty pump from him, before I knew better.  It does press on the coolant hose, which is less than ideal, but it's been that way for a few years now, with no leaks.  I know it is sort of silly, but I intend to move the nipple on the water divider (cut/weld), to accommodate my short pump; when I refresh the cooling system.  You were smart to do some research before buying.  I hope you are able to find the longer style.

You're welcome.  Blunt is awesome.  I bought about everything for my car from him, due to such good service.  I almost predicted that you would hear from him over the weekend, but skipped it.  I got an email about an order from him while he was on a fishing trip once!   Good luck.  Tom

This Pierburg works great for me, though I do have sidedrafts.  Lots of clearance.  Plenty of volume for DCOE 40s. I think Blunt can get it.

Thanks - That's a different style pump than is on my car.  I believe it uses a longer pushrod.  Here's the Pierburg that I was told would fit, but doesn't because it presses against the coolant hose:  http://www.pelicanparts.com/cgi-bin/ksearch/pel_search_2014.cgi?SUPERCAT_FLAG=Y&make=BMW&Context_make=&please_wait=N&LastVisited_input=5478&Previous_Section=&forumid=&threadid=&command=DWsearch&description=fuel+pump&I1.x=0&I1.y=0

I ordered the right one from BluntTech today:  https://blunttech.com/products/3767845 - which works with the pushrod in my car and should clear the coolant hose.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
